HSN / SAC Lookup

What is HSN Code?
The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System generally referred to as “Harmonized System of Nomenclature” or simply “HSN” is a multipurpose international product nomenclature developed by the World Customs Organization

 

Why is it required?
Every business is required to declare list of goods they are dealing into. This declaration is required along with the HSN code of such commodity. System will automatically pick tax rate under GST regime based on these HSN codes. Thus it is of utmost importance to mention correct HSN codes at the time of enrollment or registration under GST

 

GST Rates & HSN Codes

GST council has made the much-awaited announcements around tax rates on various categories of goods on day one of a two-day meeting of the said council at Srinagar. There has been a hype around these rates for a while and now these rates are finally in the public domain.

 

As soon as the GST rates were announced a huge wave of curiosity hit across industry and trade bodies. Everyone is evaluating their position as a result of this change. So in this article, we bring you our analysis of these GST rates.

 

We already know that the GST slabs are pegged at 5%, 12%, 18% & 28%. According to the latest news from the GST council, the tax structure for common-use goods are as under:

In addition to the above, a few

 

  • Sugar, Tea, Coffee and Edible oil will fall under the 5 per cent slab, while cereals, milk will be part of the exempt list under GST. This is to ensure that basic goods are available at affordable prices. However, instant food has been kept outside this bracket so, no relief for Maggie lovers!
  • The Council has set the rate for capital goods and industrial intermediate items at 18 per cent. This will positively impact domestic manufacturers as seamless input credit will be available for all capital goods. Indeed, it is time for “Make In India”.
  • Coal to be taxed at 5 percent against current 11.69 per cent. This will prove beneficial for the power sector and heavy industries which rely on coal supply. This will also help curb inflation. Expect a good run for Coal India tomorrow.
  • Toothpaste, hair oil, and soaps will all be taxed at 18 percent, where currently they are taxed at 28 percent. Most of the cosmetics and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) brands should get the benefit of this tax reduction. After all, Fair and Lovely might seem fairer in its pricing from now on!
  • The ‘mithai’ from the neighbouring sweet shop might lose some of its flavour as Indian sweets will now be taxable at 5 per cent. If you have a sweet tooth, this could hurt your pocket a wee bit in the coming days.

Plus, it was announced that:

  • for restaurants serving alcohol, the tax bracket will be 18 per cent
  • education, healthcare are going to be exempted from GST
  • services on Non-AC restaurants will be 12 per cent
